New Years resolutions, probably the most unuseful exercise that millions of people keep doing every year, only to find that by the time February rolls in they stopped pursuing half of them. Resolutions without a plan are merely wishes, and although I am a believer in the law of attraction, I also believe that the universe wants you to have a strategy.
Instead of writing your resolutions in a list, create goals you would like to achieve. What’s the difference? With a goal you have to assess where you currently are, and then where you want to be. That alone give you an indicator of progress, so for example, if you are 80kg now and would like to be 60kg by the next year, you know that you have to lose an average of 1.67kg per month; and that’s your strategy.
You need mini goals to reach that big goal, as with every new challenge, it looks huge when you start, but if you break it down to smaller goals it seems doable, and with every mini goal achieved you feel more confident in your abilities. Trying to make a drastic change from day 1 will surely make you quit come February.
New Year 2016 I had a goal of making a change in my community, and I had an action plan that I kept tweaking as I went along. Today, I am really have with my achievement, and will continue building on that goal for the upcoming year. My first mini goal is to make my readers as excited as I am to lead a healthy lifestyle, to be more active in their daily lives and then they can change the people around them.
There are so many great things to come at Seeking Salubrity this year!
